Why The Video Looks Shaky (Don Ward)
Updated: 06/18/2013 - We did a quick helicopter tour of the Black Forest burn area. Someone asked why the video looks shaky.
The national weather service in Pueblo has called off the flash flood warning for western El Paso County in east central Colorado, including Colorado Springs.
At 1:12 a.m. Friday, national weather service doppler radar indicated flash flooding from storms over the warned area.
Locations in the warning include but are not limited to Security, Schriever AFB, Peyton, Peterson AFB, Palmer Lake, Monument, Manitou Springs, Fountain, Falcon, Ellicott, Black Forest, and Air Force Academy.
Doppler radar estimates that rain totals of one to three inches have occurred over western El Paso County, along and east of interstate 25, and additional rainfall of up to an inch is expected in that area
Flood waters are collecting in low lying areas and flood prone streets and intersections. Springs authorities have reported road closures on the east side of Colorado Springs.
Emergency officials warn people not to attempt to cross swiftly flowing water or still water of unknown depth on foot or by vehicle. As little as six inches of water may cause you to lose control of your vehicle, and two feet of rushing water can carry away most vehicles, including SUVs and pickups. Nearly half of all flood fatalities are vehicle related. Authorities urge drivers to back up out of deep water, and if you encounter a road barrier in front of water on the road, turn around, don't drown.
